At issue are teachers who lost their jobs due to a turn around program. The program's purpose was to elevate the academics in failing schools -- most of which are populated by black students. Canning unproductive teachers is part of the process.
It turns out that a disproportionate number of fired teachers happened to be black. While blacks were not intentionally singled out, the disproportion constitutes a violation of their civil rights and prompted the class action suit.
The screamer is the fact that the suit only applies to Aframericans, leaving fired non-blacks to fend for themselves. The 100% inclusion of blacks and the 100% exclusion of non-blacks seems to be a tad disproportionate and, consequently, violates the spirit of the civil rights principle the suit intended to uphold.
